    I sleaved most of the wires but like I said I ran out of sleaving. I will pick some up and finish it.

    It's a NZXT Zero 2 full tower case.


    A couple more shots (UV tubing) and old 4870 cf cards

    Ok i got my board today and it works but im not happy at all, should i ask for a refund? The Heatsinks for the NB and VRMs looks like it was taken off and attempted to either use paint thinner or some type of sanding cause NB has some bad scratches on it. Also the board is warped alittle around the CPU, This could be from the previous owner/s overheating the cpu area or it had a huge cooler that was tighten too tight. All in all it works, i reset the bios and then installed two Gskill sticks and a Corsair stick for 3x1gb tri channel and i ran IBT for 10 runs on max mem and threads with stock cooler and it didnt become unstable.

    This is what it looks like from factory

    If they were painted, how come the text is still in the original red color? :confused:

    Besides from being weird, I like the black and gold combo. They should make some boards like that.

    What the hell???
    This was an open-box item from Newegg?

    I have the same board for one of my crunchers (was actually the first X58 board I purchased a year and half ago) and have loved the stability. One reason I chose it was because of the looks, second was the price at that time:)
    I think I would ask for a refund if you are worried about the looks. Could also effect resale value down the rode...
